Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name is Tory (not due to preference, it's just legit my full
name), but I most often go by "Beats" now, because I'm in the Army
and we go by our last names, and that was the nickname that
To put it simply: I am 23 years old, my favorite color is blue,
sometimes pink, I like sloths, koalas, otters, and other awkward
animals, like corgis, I can't live without music, I'm really loud,
sometimes annoying, I laugh way too hard at things that aren't all
that funny, I like to wear strange hats, fake classes, sweatshirts,
toe socks, and mustaches drawn on post-it notes.
I'm unfortunately very obviously gay to be around, and girls make
me terribly awkward.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I took a leave of absence from Syracuse University last year to
join the US Army, since school wasn't working out for me and I had
nothing better to do. But now I'm going to be a Drill Sergeant one
day because I absolutely fell in love at Basic.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Talking, writing, making people laugh, being a total goof, tripping
over things, and going on adventures (aka- getting lost)!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Physically: unfortunately my hair has to be normal colored now, so
probably just my eyes- they're kind of an unusually big and weird
Honestly, though, they probably hear me first.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I love to read more than I like to breathe, but the most
recent books I've read have all been by Khaled Hosseini.
Movies, Top 3: Armageddon, Coyote Ugly, Breakfast Club. Also any
Disney classic (or even current- hello Finding Nemo and Despicable
Me), and pretty much ANY Bruce Willis movie.
Shows: I don't watch TV anymore, but I have previously been
desperately addicted to: Glee, Firefly, Law and Order: SVU, SGA,
Criminal Minds, CSI, Dollhouse, Angel, Charmed, Warehouse 13...
that sort of thing.
Music: I like anything that I can sing to. Mostly I listen to top
40 or soft rock radio stations, but I love to jam to the 90s and
Food: Peanut butter, various assortment of fruits, and Diet Coke.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
6- some form of nourishment
4- my laptop
3- people (any) to talk to
2- my friends and siblings
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Stories. I like to write almost as much as I like to read- on some
days more. So, usually, I'm thinking about that. Most of the time,
it's whatever is not actually happening right in front of me.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging out in my PJs and watching movies. I strongly prefer nights
in, but I'll go out if the right people are asking me to go.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have adhd- which is a lot more than not being able to sit still
and talking too much.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you want a friend or just someone to pass the time with! I'm not
a very good initiator, but I'll talk to almost anyone, and pretty
much about anything.
